In football, Smouha finished in second place in the 2008–09 Egyptian Second Division season. They were close to being promoted to the Egyptian Premier League, but they lost their final match against Kafr El-Zayat, so Mansoura was promoted instead. In the 2009–10 Egyptian Second Division Smouha secured promotion to the 2010-11 Egyptian Premier League after a 7–1 win against Abu Qair Semad on 28 April 2010.[1] Smouha played in the Egyptian Premier League for the first time in its history. The current president of Smouha sporting club is Egyptian millionaire and member of parliament Mohamed Farag Amer, founder and chief executive of Faragallah Group, a producer of food products.
